Given the director's actions regarding some of his other games I'd say that's pretty likely lol.

Sounds like a deflection to me (by the director, not by you). FFXIII was one of the most-returned, most-traded new release titles in JRPG history in Japan, too. Pictures exist of shelf after shelf of FFXIII waiting for resale, but not selling.


In Japan I never said anything about Japan the disdain came from the West not from Japan. Square and the Director said they couldn't handl another failure in the West for Final Fantasy like 13. That's their exact words. Plus Japan wasn't a fan of 13 they overlooked it shittiness because of their love for Lightning.

Think what you want this are taken from people that worked on the game and run the company.

I am sorry, but, like I requested above, statements like these require proof in the form of a link, a citation, etc.

I dunno, maybe production value?

I recall reading an interview with a Japenese dev (mind you this was several years ago) claiming that Western companies put a lot into releasing high production AAA games, at a slower pace, whereas Japanese companies, as a whole, tend to throw out as many as they can with varying production costs...most of which are on the lower end.

I'll try and search for that particular article.

Like I said think what you want. because whatever you think won't change the reality.

Reality requires proof. If you are unable to provide proof (e.g. the link and / or citation I have now twice requested), that is no different from telling a lie. ... I sense you are missing the point, so I am not going to continue this conversation.

Pic or didn't happen, seeing as it's several years old I don't have to time to look through countless google pages to find it. You're a moron.

wat

Also



Japanese developers do not care if American gamers bitch about the content of their games. That would be one big difference.

I don't know about you, but if the new, action-style FFXV and the remake of FFVII, don't convince you, then I am not sure you can be convinced at this point.

Also, as one more caveat, let us take a look at the gigantic success of Sony's and Nintendo's gaming platforms in the western world. If you think they aren't pandering to western tastes, then you have, quite frankly, a very simpleminded and simplistic view of the eastern gaming industry.

Hell, they even released a version of FFXV for Windows. And note that I am only repeatedly using these two games as an example to reinforce the examples that other's gave to you.

Developers from both sides have influenced each other for so long that the lines have simply blurred at this point. From Japan's side, you can still find very JRPG-like games occasionally (Bravely Default, Nier: Automata) but most are intended for a global audience (DB FighterZ, Kingdom Hearts, Gran Turismo).

I prefer western RPG's these days because to me they offer more personal choice and freedom, they are often more adult/mature and are more likely to be open world, have character creation/customisation, you can choose what sort of person you are (nice, evil, etc), usually your choices/actions have more impact on the out come of the game, etc.
Where as Japanese rpgs you often just play the role of the character and follow a set path, dont have many choices that alter the game or impact how the game ends.

Not as many pretty boys and cute creatures and young girls and stuff in western games. Japanese games can be more perverted , seem more kiddie, more likely to be cartoony, etc (iam not saying any of these are bad things).

Japanese are probably better at making games more emotional though.

Hmm kind of seems like western game developers target the on line audience more as well?

One thing the Japanese have over western developers as well is (as was sort of already mentioned by someone else), their games are not being infiltrated and effect by things such as political correctness and feminism. Not being ruined by SJW's and maybe having some political agendas thrown in.

Admittedly though, i dont play Japanese games much anymore ( i used to be obsessed with them and thought they were way better than western games), nor have i played any new/recent Japanese games so maybe i cant say.

But yeah for me, Western RPG's and fps games FTW.

I do miss playing JRPG's and fighting games though.
